Bicton College Lake, East Budleigh

A 2nd winter Iceland Gull at Bicton College Lake this morning loafing with around 50+ Herring Gulls, seemingly present since at least Sunday. This bird looks very like the bird from Seaton Marshes earlier in the month http://devonbirdnews.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/seaton_3641.html and maybe the bird Matt has been seeing on the Exe?

Another visit to the same lake this afternoon, produced a second Iceland Gull - this time a 1st winter and probably the same bird I had a few days ago on the Otter. Certainly seems there are plenty of white-wingers on the move!
